"Buy Kingpin Online Page Updated"
  posted December 30 - 11:10PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have just finished updating our Buying Kingpin: Life Of Crime Page. The page has entries for sites from around the world where you can still purchase a new or used copy of Kingpin (or even download it from one Abandonware site for $4.95). Currently Amazon UK have new or used copies from 45 pence and Amazon USA have used copies from $7.73. Ebay has a heap of copies available with early bids as low as 1c. There are also new copies from other sites from $19.90 and sites where you can buy it as part of a games pack. Check out our Buy Kingpin page here.

I have also uploaded a NOCD crack and added a link on the front page under the FilesLink or you can download it directly from here.

"New Kingpin Style Game"
  posted December 28 - 7:01PM EST by Mr.Damage
Elliot Pace sent in some news about a small game he has created called GrimSim.
GrimSim is a mix of game genres and is inspired by multiple commercial titles including Kingpin, Grand Theft Auto, and many others. The objective is to finish a set amount of days and make the highest score possible (calculated by many factors).
It's part FPS, part Sim game set in a gang environment.
Basically you must earn money by working or by killing drug dealers and then selling their drugs to addicts.
You can improve you knowledge (university)and muscle skills (gym) and the more knowledge you have the better job you can get.
You can contact The Dragons and they send you on missions to kill drug dealers.
There are several Kingpin NPC's you can interact with to buy goods and improve your skills.
You can enter dance contests or play the slot machines.
You get to use the KP pistol or shotty.

This is a beta release and any comments and feedback will be welcomed by Elliot. He doesn't think the gameplay is too hot so many you can give him some ideas on how to imrove it. Contact details are at his webpage.

You can download GrimSim from his webpage here.
If you go to the work section you can see a history of the making of Grimsim from conception to completion of the beta release.

"Douglas Joinery DM Map"
  posted December 8 - 2:50AM EST by Mr.Damage

Douglas Joinery by IzeforealDownload

The other day I ran into Izeforeal in the Detropolis Custom Maps Server. He was back playing KP after a bit of an absence and we got to talking about his Douglas Joinery DM map he released a few years back. It an interesting map so I decided to make a news post about it.
It is a medium to large sized DM map set in the factory where Izeforeal worked at the time. There is a large factory area with two levels (the factory floor and office areas), outside areas (with lots of crates of course) and the factory roof can be accessed for some rooftop fragging. It has sixteen player spawns, lots of weapons, armour etc and apparently is a good representation of the real life factory.



"BR2 DM Map Revised"
  posted December 5 - 4:35AM EST by Mr.Damage

BR2 Revised by Mr DamageDownload

I have revised an old DM map called BR2 which was creatd by Deefa.
It's a small arena style map which features a centre structure, walkways, platforms all on different levels. There are platforms in each corner of the arena which move up to walkways which skirt the edge of the four walls. The structure in the middle of the map has a cooling mod in the middel of the lower section whilst up high is the HMG. The map features ample wepons and items and 13 player spawn points.
The main changes I made are to improve the lighting, add more spawns, amend the weapon and item numbers and placement and to remove four superflous walls.



I have added thsi map to the rotation at the Detropolis Custom Maps Server.

Btw if you want to see the original map by Deefa you can grab it from here.
